    Several people have recently posted pictures of covered bridges in their area. There is only one covered bridge left in Ontario...this one, which is near St. Jacob, in Mennonite country. I took this picture last year, on a cold grey day. After walking around for about 1/2 hour, I was frozen solid and hopped in the car to warm up. At which point some Mennonites in their horse-drawn buggy came through the bridge. D'oh! I waited another 1/2 hour, in case another buggy came by, but of course one didn't and by then it was dark. On the next sunny Sunday I get free, I'm gonna try again for that hoped-for shot!

    i'm always fascinated by covered bridge photos, i don't think we have any in the southwest, but maybe I just don't get out enough...

    i love the bright red in the middle of all that monochrome, winter scene :thumbup: good luck catcing a buggy!

    Very nice!!! Covered bridges make nice subjects to photo. I'm originally from New England, so I'm used to seeing covered bridges. Now that I live in Michigan, I realize how much I miss that part of the country.

    Thanks for posting your wonderful images!! :thumbup:

    If that's the bridge at Hartland, it's also the longest covered bridge in the world! (Used to drive by it on the way to Fredericton) Look forward to seeing the picture!
